D. All of the above
E. None of the above

865. Which of the following statements regarding temperature receptors is FALSE?
A. There are more cold receptors in the skin than warm receptors.
B. Temperature sensory organs are naked sensory nerve endings responding to temperature changes
C. Temperatures sensory organs senses subcutaneous temperature, not skin surface temperature
D. Cold receptors respond to temperature range IO-38°C & warm receptors respond to temperature range 30-4SoC

B. Slow or 2nd pain is transmitted by C fiber.
C. Pain impulses are modified at the dorsal horn by interneurons & collateral touch fibers.
D. Principal neurotransmitter of pain is histamine

868. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
A. Visceral pain tends to be poorly localized & is often referred to distal sites.
B. Visceral pain can initiate reflex contraction of nearby skeletal muscle
C. Ischemic muscle tends to be persistently painful until reperfusion occurs, due to accumulation of metabolic products such as potassium.
